HI! My name is Maryann Rhodey and I want to thank you for being a part of my community. This page will give you a little insight into my life and business.
Helping others has always been a passion of mine. Helping you with your health needs is where we start. We live in a time with an overwhelming variety of food choices. At the same time, we are inundated with information about health and nutrition. How does one sort through the fads, the hype and the “latest” nutrition news? I am here to help.
In 2004, I was diagnosed with Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis – two autoimmune diseases highly correlated with chronic inflammation and nutritional deficits. This opened my eyes to “food-as-medicine” and led me on a healing journey that included the slow process of ending my love affair with sugar and processed foods. The changes I made in foods I was eating, made all the difference in how I felt. It was amazing! Fast forward to today, I am no longer on any prescription medications and I feel like I have my life back. This transformation then led me to training in food-based nutrition as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a 21 Day Sugar Detox Coach.
My goal is to help you learn practical, real-life tools to nourish yourself and your family without diets and deprivation; life-long, changes, not fads and unrealistic expectations. Working together, we will create an individualized and sustainable plan that will empower you to integrate nutritious foods and nourishing choices into your lifestyle. Together, we will build a foundation of balance for you and your body. We’ll collaborate to build realistic, attainable solutions to meet your immediate nutritional needs and support your long-term health goals.
When we work together, I use what is called a “bio-individual” approach. This simply means that I look at each person and how their own body works, not a “one size fits all” plan. Individualized treatment plans are made based on your unique needs.
Staying nourished on the go is a challenge. This is where I can help you develop a plan that works with your schedule, especially with an on go schedule like we wrestle with daily. My path has taken me from the darkness of the diagnosis to the brighter confidence of making more meaningful choices for improved health and quality of life for the long term. I want the same for you!
Through training with the Nutritional Therapy Association, I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP). My key areas of interest are auto-immune, digestion, thyroid, and adrenal issues, blood sugar management, food sensitivities and anti-inflammatory management through foods, weight management, pre-conception, pregnancy, post pregnancy, family nutrition and meal planning.
